Hi Pavel, Thanks for the tip. I looked at http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/LyxFunctions but there was not much in the way of direction there. Could you possibly give me a bit more insight? On Sat, Aug 15, 2009 at 4:56 AM, Pavel Sandasa...@lyx.org wrote: Venable wrote: having the cursor appear

Dear Lyx-list, I am trying to use Command Sequences to come up with a simple way to create frames in Beamer without resorting to the use of \lyxframe{} or repeated copying-and-pasting. My goal is to use a minimal number of keystrokes to create plain LaTeX \begin{frame}, \frametitle{} and

Thanks, that works great. It also exports nicely into LaTeX as you mentioned. As an aside, it would be an improvement to LyX generally if LyX did not use this lyxframe customization when creating Beamer documents, since it makes interoperability less convenient than it could be. For example, SWP

Dear LyX Users, I would like to use step bullet item lists in a Beamer presentation. This is fairly simple in SWP, since there is a Step Bullet List Item Item Tag available with a simple keyboard shortcut. Does a similar function exist in LyX? If not, is it possible to customize either LyX itself
